Hi to all!

I'm already testing issues for beta/alpha releases, running in Windows 10/7.

But I want to cross-test those issues in Linux. (Running it in VirtualBox) I would like it to be easy - just a click or a command - to get the latest release.

(Of course those distribution only have a stable release in their own software repository!)

for any modern Linux you can use special build with autoupdate (only for 64 bit OS):


download it, unzip to /home/your-name and start it.

openSUSE Leap and Tumbleweed have a LibreOffice:/Factory repository that right now offers 6.1 beta2.
